Benny Gantz told BBC in February 2005 that the current plan was to blow Lebanon back 20 years, that was the only plan. Here is the thing with history though Ze'ev. I have been doing a lot of reading about Israel since last July - more than usual because people are finally writing honest books instead of the Leon Uris vision of things. I have nearly finished Pappe's book "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" and before that "Beyond Chutzpah" by Norman Finkelstein, and before that "The Accidental Empire" by Gershom Gorenberg. Pappe's historically factual photos and orders from Ben Gurion's diaries show that the ethnic cleansing of Palestine was planned long before the holocaust and continues until this day. Israel really is an illegitimate little piece of viciousness isn't she?
